I will have just got back from a week in Greece with a suitcase full of sunshine, olives and other magical Greek things!
The meu will change depending on what I eat out there and what I can fit in the case but just to give
you some idea of what we will be eating ....
Melitzanosalata a Greek aubergine dip, is a simple yet tasty dish of roasted aubergine, garlic, oil, and lemon juice. It's perfect for dipping bread into.
Garlic prawns with feta - If you are a seafood lover, then this is one you will just love great with crusty bread to soak up the delicious sauce, who knew that prawns and feta was a thing!
Traditional Greek fava is one of the best things I have tasted. Made with yellow split peas all it takes is a handful of ingredients and a half an hour of time and you have yourself an aromatic wonder.
Crispy baked chicken - marinated overnight with garlic, lemon, olive oil and oregano served with a feta and mint dipping sauce.
Lamb kleftiko -The lamb is cooked until it is so tender it simply falls apart at the touch of the fork (you can't' have a Greek night without it)
Briam is a simple and absolutely delicious Greek roasted vegetable dish, potatoes, courgette, and red onions are tossed in a mixture of garlic, parsley and spices, then roasted in saucy diced tomatoes.
Baklava - would be rude not to.
Greek Pistachio and Honey Bougatsa (also called custard pie) made with layers of delicate filo pastry, vanilla bean custard and drizzled with honey and pistachios.
